Past Life Regression Therapy is rooted in a belief in reincarnation, and based on the idea that people can deal with the emotional and psychological problems they experience by using hypnosis to gain access to the experiences and traumas of past lives.
It is believed that these unresolved issues in past existences carry-over into their present lives and contribute to the unhappiness and discomfort they feel. By becoming aware of who they were, what they did and what happened to them in these past lives they can gain insight into themselves in the present and use that knowledge to help them overcome the pain, problems and confusion that trouble them.
Journey Back in Time was filmed between New York and New Jersey in the United States and Helsinki and Turku in Finland.
